Over on Instagram, I’m celebrating Women’s History Month. Shirley Chisholm was the first African American congresswoman and the first woman to run for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination. As her campaign poster said, she was unbought and unbossed. I wish she were here with us now, because not many people can say that these days.
Today for #WomensHistoryMonth, we are thinking of trailblazer Shirley Chisholm, the first African American woman to run for president for a major political party. This powerhouse was the first African American congresswoman, the first woman to run for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination; she founded the Congressional Black Caucus to represent black members of Congress. To read about this icon in the fight for diversity and equality, follow the #IKnowNow hashtag started by Ky Ekinci. We've got a few favorite "Chisholm-isms," with one of her best-known being, "If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair." #HERstory ⠀ -⠀ -⠀ -⠀ #politics #activism #activist #imwithher #unboughtandunbossed #seatatthetable ⠀ -⠀ Biography and image source: BBC News.
